Is this a known doom bug ?

Recommended Posts

The issue is found in this wad ...

http://www.doomworld.com/idgames/index.php?id=6103

Now go to E3M3 sector 409.

Now if firing a hitscan weapon at line 1992, sector 409 rises to sector 394's floor level as it should.

But ...

If using the fist or chainsaw, sector 409 does not rise, ( or might lower, depending on port ) trapping the player ( if not using jump ).

So is this a doom bug ? If so, is it a known one ?

I may be completely wrong, but to me it has to do with the player blocking the rising sector. If you walk close to the switch (*) and shoot it with any weapon, it won't rise either. So it is not hitscan/chainsaw/fist issue, but player location one.

(*) standing for example here P=player %=switch

+---+-%-+---+
|   |   |  P|

You are right about it not just being a hitscan issue. Also, if any part of the player is within sector 397 and activates the switch, sector 409 fails to rise. Author error. Case closed.
